What an unexpected surprise in the middle of a Conservancy! This camp (glamp) with its wonderful staff was one of the highlights of our entire holiday to Kenya. We saw some amazing sights, lots of animals - Lions, elephants, giraffes etc.... and all up close...More
Wow. What an amazing camp. Love the Gamewatchers enviromental ethos. Woken in the mornings by the Lions roaring and then a hot cup of tea. Our spotter Wilson and driver Milite went out of their way to ensure we had a great experience. We can...More
Amazing, amazing, amazing. Amboseli National Park itself is gorgeous, full of wild life, accessable, and aa must see.
Camp itself is somewhat of a distance (1 hour drive) from the National Park itself, in a conservancy. Porini started the Conservancy trend with this one. If...More
I'm a serious amateur naturalist, have been to Africa several times, and was interested in far more than just seeing another lion. I don't know if your guides were well trained, well educated, or just plain smart. It was probably all of the above. They...More

Most instances, the animals were incredibly close, at all the Porini Camps (Lion, Ambosolli and Mara) we visited. That was definitely one (of many) great positives of visiting the conservancies, vs the parks. In the conservancies we could drive off road in the jeep, and actually intermingle with the animals. Whereas, in the parks we were confined to staying only on the designated roads and gazing out across the terrain at the animals in a distant. Sorry, not a photo expert so can't help with what zoom to bring. I brought a point and shoot super zoom camera and (for my needs) took really amazing pics. All I can say is we were mere yards from elephants, lions, rhinos, monkeys, baboons, leopard and even had cheetah rub against our vehicle bumper.
